Default Difference--> Standard vs. High Speed wheel balancing??

I'm trying to find a shop that offers LIFETIME (of the tire) high speed wheel balances (if I even need high speed). I called TiresPlus which offer the lifetime service, but it's standard balancing. I asked what is the difference between standard and high speed balancing....

If a wheel is balanced, isn't it balanced PERIOD? Surely they don't balance customers wheels and tell them to stay 5 under the 70mph highway speed limits Click the image to open in full size.

Can someone shed some light on this?

Thanks

I do not know but there is my guess; better wieghts that have less chance of flying off at high speeds and more accuracy and precision in the balancing.

High speed balancing allows you to test the balance of the tire and wheel while simulating the weight of the vehicle on them.

You can read about it here:

Doesn't really explain the difference between the two. Just discusses the Hunter GSP9700 machine.

Closest thing I found:

Any other info on this?
